Bassoon-core? Aw yeah! "The BASSOONCORE movement in the early 1990's consists of a short list of little-known bands and foremost among those is CHOTCHKE (1993-1998), who began life as a six-piece and went on through fluctuating memberships and styles to record a lot and release a little. Today I will present the first in a series of studies of the unedited studio noodling of Chotchke." More music from Chotchke courtesy of WFMU. The Story of Chotchke from a former member.

Two of my roomates play bassoon. According to one, he was "into bassoon before it was cool."

scruss: Thanks for posting about Jeff Burke! Killer playing.
spikelee et al: When I lived in Austin, I loved seeing D&T, before they moved. Great music, great live band.

As a bassoonist, I have to say... man, I wish I were this cool.
